Students at Tennessee College of Applied Technology-Murfreesboro's Smyrna campus

Nearly 2,000 high school students across Tennessee took their seats Thursday at tables festooned with school colors to sign their college letters of intent. Parents, siblings and other relatives, school officials, and business and civic leaders watched and applauded. It was a scene replayed at most of the 27 Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology for National Career and Technical Education Letter of Intent Signing Day on Feb. 16.  Modeled after the NCAA’s National Signing Day for high school athletes signing letters of intent to play college sports, CTE Letter of Intent Signing Day honors students choosing to enroll in technical colleges to further their educations.
